Durban Princess Sport Fishing

Explore the amazing waters off the coast of California with Durban Princess Sport Fishing! Captain Justin Young is a local angler with over 10 years of experience fishing these waters, and he’ll make sure to take you to the very best spots and honey holes in the area. He loves sharing his knowledge, and has something to offer to every type of angler.

Hop aboard his 38’ Mediterranean Sportfish convertible boat, accommodating up to 6 anglers. There is a fully equipped restroom and access to a microwave should you wish to warm your food. There’s a flybridge to protect you from the sun, as well as all-new electronics, floors, and paint. And let’s not forget the large cockpit for landing that big catch!

There’s a variety of fish species that call these waters their home, and you can come and take your pick. Capt. Justin will put you on some of the most prized fish in the area, including Lingcod, Rockfish, Tuna, Salmon, Halibut, and Striped Bass. At the end of the trip, he’ll clean and fillet your catch, so it’s ready to go straight to the table upon your return.

All the gear and terminal tackle will be provided for you when you book a trip. You’re welcome to bring your own equipment if you wish so. If you’re having a birthday gathering, let the captain know in advance and he’ll make it a very special trip.

Always extra “points” for those who bait their own hooks and have more experience, but for the first-timers, of course, the crew is there to teach you how to fish and guide you every step of the way. Most importantly, you will need at least a 1-day fishing license that can be purchased online from the CA Department of Fish and Game for roughly $16.50.

Book a trip with Durban Princess Sport Fishing and come enjoy a fun-filled on the waters of California!
